Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote (Paleo, Vegan)

I first published this recipe on my old blog this time last year but somehow forgot to post it here after I made Real Food Renegades! It’s funny because this is one of my all-time favourite recipes that I make every week in the spring and summer. I was reminded by my lovely reader Janel, who’s a very avid fan of my Strawberry-Rhubarb Compote, to share it here! This is one of the simplest batch cooking recipes you can make throughout this warmer weather with fresh rhubarb from your own backyard (it grows like a weed!) and your family can use it all week – it’s the perfect spread for waffles and pancakes, or fill the gluten-free pie shells from this recipe for something new. With the tantalizing sweet and sour flavours of strawberry and rhubarb, you can’t go wrong!

Lemon Raspberry Jam (Refined Sugar-Free)

Who else is a huge fan of jam? I definitely am. I think that it’s more to do with the memories I have of making homemade jam, in huge batches with my mom and grandmother, than the jam itself. We’d fill a ginormous pot with blueberries and sugar, and I’d get to stir as we added pectin to let it set. Both of my grandmothers’ make mean strawberry jams, too! A favourite breakfast of mine would be toast slathered with vegan margarine (no butter, since I’m allergic to dairy!) and sweet berry jam.

Peach Blueberry Two-Tone Smoothie

As you may know, I am in high school. And apparently high schoolers eat a lot. And I am no exception! I am constantly thinking about cooking and especially eating. But not just any food: fresh, healthy food, i.e. lots of veggies and fruits! After school I always have a snack! Now that it’s summer, smoothies are often on the menu. My all-time favourite smoothie is definitely chocolate-blueberry-PB, which I will have to post sometime. But sometimes light + fruity is in order, and these Peach Blueberry Two-Tone Smoothies fit the bill! I’ll be honest: this was kind of messy to make. I finished the peach part and before I finished the blueberry, the peach was melting all over the place! Oops. Also, my blender was having issues and was drizzling blueberry smoothie everywhere. Oops again.
